There are a variety of volunteer roles available to be involved in the festival, including festival operations, Auction Committee, admissions, beverage/culinary serving opportunities and general ambassadors for wayfinding and guest relations.
You must be 21 years of age or older to volunteer for the festival. Volunteers receive a souvenir St. Augustine Food + Wine Festival apron, souvenir glassware and an opportunity to enjoy the event in which they are volunteering after their shift ends – or even free event ticket opportunities, depending upon the number of volunteer hours a volunteer can commit. Volunteers that participate in volunteering over 8 hours in a variety of volunteer roles/shifts will earn a free “Smoke on the Walk” ticket or “River Walk Tastings” ticket. In addition, if volunteers complete their shifts before an event starts, they can also attend the event.
Volunteer attire includes black pants/shorts/skirts with collared white shirts. Depending upon the event (seated dinners, brunch, etc. will require long pants and long-sleeved collared shirts). All volunteers are not allowed to drink any alcoholic beverages while volunteering, will be required to wear closed-toe shoes and must sign a waiver of liability.
Volunteer aprons and credentials will need to be removed before participating in event tastings. A special discount Promo code will be provided to volunteers for opportunities to purchase St. Augustine Food + Wine Festival tickets. You will receive your promo code after signing-up for your volunteer shift.
There will be a mandatory attendance Volunteer Orientation Session scheduled on Tuesday, May 7, 2024 from 6 – 7 pm at the World Golf Village Renaissance St. Augustine Resort. Each volunteer will receive their festival credentials and apron at the Volunteer Orientation session.
